Sadie Salome, Go Home
Hello there - I'm interested in the recording you have of Sadie Salome, Go Home. I'm curious what type of format you have this one (record etc.) and where you may have gotten it? I'm looking for a version, and have had a difficult time finding the same one, which I find to be the best one out there from that time period.

different take on a dandy old song
At least in the old days everybody sounded distinct from everybody else. an initiate can't listen to this Bob Roberts record and think he's hearing Billy Murray. "Everybody Works but Father," is one of several Murray songs Bob Roberts does in this group, and he gives it a funny little twist. it's got different verses than in Murray's version, and he has if anything a stronger voice--and both are well worth listening to. If my wife wasn't raising cain, I'd listen to the whole bunch of Mr. Roberts' songs right this minute.
